School, particularly our classroom, is a place for each student to learn and grow (academically and socially) while also having fun. I believe and support the idea that we are a classroom "family" that helps and accepts each other. I believe that each student learns best when they feel comfortable, safe, and happy in their classroom environment. I accept and support each of my students as valuable individuals and am dedicated to meeting each of their specific needs to help everyone meet their goals. I believe that together (student, family, and teacher) we are a team that can achieve anything we set our minds to. Overall, I truly care about each of my students and their families, and value our time together.
